Leaked: SJP Plans Illegal Activity Against Jewish Students And Israel


Guest Post by Tammi Rossman-Benjamin -Cross posted from the Times of Israel

A recently uncovered internal document of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at Binghamton University SUNY sheds new light on the anti-Semitic bigotry of SJP groups across the country, as well as SJP’s ties to international campaigns to harm the Jewish state and the Jewish people.

Entitled “Declaration of Principles and Strategies,” the document specifically outlines strategies for targeting, ostracizing, harassing, and silencing students on campus who oppose the boycott of Israel or who simply attend a pro-Israel event. In a lengthy section on “Tactics and Strategies Used to Counter Zionist Normalization,” the document gives detailed instructions for when and how to disrupt “Zionist” events and activities on campus. Disrupting an event is a direct violation of others’ right to freedom of expression and assembly, and a blatant violation of New York law.

The internal Binghamton-SJP Declaration is a window into “anti-Zionist normalization” campaigns being waged by SJP groups across the country, whose explicit purpose is to delegitimize all pro-Israel perspectives and actively suppress their expression on college campuses. These campaigns have resulted in dozens of Jewish and pro-Israel students’ events being disrupted, and Jewish and pro-Israel students feeling harassed, intimidated, and stripped of their constitutionally-protected freedom of expression and association. For example:

• Feb 27, 2012 at University of California Davis, SJP and other groups staged a planned disruption of a Jewish student event consisting of two Israelis –a Jewish man and a Druze woman. In a video taken at a meeting of SJP, MSA and MeChA students preparing to disrupt the Jewish student event, the leader of the protesters said, “Events like these are not welcome on our campus anymore,” and his statement was met with a large round of cheers and applause. During the Jewish student event, protestors staged a walk-out along with verbal assaults shouted at the speaker, such as, “How many women have you raped? How many children have you raped? You are a child molester,” and claiming that Israel has “turned the land of Palestine into a land of prostitutes and rapists and child molesters.” One of the hecklers admitted, “My only purpose here today is that this event be shut down.”

• On March 12th, 2013 at DePaul University, SJP members and other protesters disrupted a talk by Assistant U.S. Attorney Barry Jonas sponsored by Center for Jewish Law & Judaic Studies. Angry that Jonas had helped to shut down organizations which had raised money for the terrorist group Hamas, DePaul SJP members hurled verbal insults at the speaker, such as chants of “Hey DePaul, let’s be clear — racists are not welcome here,” and heckled the audience with questions about how the university could have allowed such an Islamophobic and racist event to take place. As a result of the disruptions, the event was ended early.

• On September 9, 2014 at Loyola University-Chicago, SJP members verbally assaulted their Jewish peers, yelling insults at them and created a human wall to block Hillel members’ from sharing information with fellow students about Birthright trips to Israel.

Make no mistake about it. SJP’s BDS and “anti-Zionist normalization” campaigns are a front for the larger international coordinated effort to demonize, delegitimize, and ultimately destroy the Jewish state, an effort which has been spearheaded by the Palestinian BDS National Committee, whose member organizations include the terrorist groups Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Having launched the “Palestinian Call for BDS” in 2005, the Committee’s mission has been to coordinate global BDS efforts and to be the “reference point” for “anti-normalization campaigns” intended to ensure the delegitimization and silencing of any individual or group that accepts the legitimacy of the Jewish state.

The “Palestinian Call for BDS” was formally adopted as a “point of unity” at the first National SJP Conference in 2011, and virtually every SJP chapter in the country has responded to the Palestinian Call by establishing the promotion of BDS as an essential part of their group’s mission. In addition, the National SJP Conference at Tufts University last month boasted a workshop on “Countering Normalization of Israeli Oppression on Campus,” and many chapters, such as the SJP group at Binghamton University, have incorporated the Palestinian BDS National Committee’s “anti-normalization” tactics into their own rejection of Jewish and pro-Israel student groups and their events. To all of us monitoring this closely, it is crystal clear what is really happening: SJP students are serving as the foot soldiers for the Palestinian BDS National Committee’s campaign to destroy the Jewish state.

The Palestinian BDS National Committee has actively cultivated student allies on U.S. campuses and has found a willing partner in SJP, with one Committee member group crowing: “Internationally, we are heartened by the increased coordination and growth of Students for Justice in Palestine on campuses across the United States.”

It is understandable why the Palestinian BDS National Committee would be delighted that SJP is establishing a beachhead for promoting the Committee’s own BDS and “anti-normalization” campaigns on U.S. campuses. What is more difficult to understand is why university administrators would allow a group like SJP to become an officially recognized and funded student organization.

Total fake-out. Blame Bush. Not him, the other guy.

Aliens. I think it was aliens in black skin suits.

Jeff Dunetz said...

Blame anyone but the real criminals.....makes sense to liberals doesnt it ??? Certainly Mike's "mother" will not take any blame even though she raised a thug & a bully !!! Works for me !!!

Jeff Dunetz said...

The article was not amusing in any way shape or form but nice try...

Jeff Dunetz said...

so mike, next time you write something

Jeff Dunetz said...

If the mothers had cared enough to tell their kids not to use drugs; not to steal from and loot stores, commit arson, rough up clerks and attack COPs; and that there is a God in a Heaven for the Born Again and a Hell for the Lost, then maybe their sons would not get killed nor have caused this Ferguson or the thousands more to come...

Jeff Dunetz said...

Absolutely! They are losers, aren't they?

Jeff Dunetz said...

Are you a liberal, Jeff? Why can't I make a comment about the article. If you thought it was a good one then praise it- no need to attack me.

Jeff Dunetz said...

I liked this article because it highlights the hypocrisy circulating in our country and the absolute ridiculous and meaningless diatribe on the major networks, except for FOX which consistently hits the nail on the head more then any other network. One of my Hispanic friends asked me what I thought of the Ferguson riots and the looting and destruction of the businesses, etc. I asked him what would happen if this incident happened in a Hispanic neighborhood and without hesitating, he said that there would not be looting and the burning of the businesses in their community. He said it was stupid as the only people hurt are those living in the neigborhood who are going to lose businesses as the owners will never rebuild in Ferguson and put up with the lack of respect for private property and violence shown in this incident.

Satire is a wonderful weapon and useful tool and you wield it well.


But a H/T to truth...I do hope the merchants and law abiding people of that place no one heard of before have remembered their manners and sent thank you cards to their true "benefactors": Eric the Unjust, for sending in his rabble rousers early then following them in, court jester, Sleazy Sharpton, race baiter and huckster favorite of Barry's and Barry the Arrogant himself for missing every single opportunity to rein in the crazy, instead using every opportunity to ramp it up (with his proxies).


Yes, boys...Barry, Eric and Al...look at those damaged and destroyed lives and as community organizers, take pride in your work product...YOU BUILT THAT!

Jeff Dunetz said...

Aw...did your widdle feewings get hurt? Silly wabbit...

Jeff Dunetz said...

And what about that spear chucker step daddy? What a total lost cause that sub human savage is!


Hey, RoseMarie, nice wedding picture. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Jeff Dunetz said...

Thanks !!! That was many years ago. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well !!!

Mike, I have to disagree. I thought it was hilarious once I caught on (It took a few seconds).

But, those are our individual opinions. Part of the fun of being on this web site is to read different viewpoints.

Would you mind telling me why you didn't find it amusing? I thought it was because it highlighted the absurdity of this whole situation.

The author of this foolish piece is a total fool. While the people he blames were clearly done in jest, the ones he absolved of responsibility is devoid of rational thinking - simply mindless.

President Obama enabled the protestors to loot, burn and destroy.
AG Holder, poured gasoline on the fire, inferring the corruption and incompetence of the police.
Al Sharpton was just Al Sharpton, a self aggrandizing race hustler in black skin.
Gov. Nixon, took control away from the appropriate authorities and and BLEW it at every opportunity.

If it is true, and i suspect it was, Obama and Holder demanded that Nixon "hide" the National Guard to let Ferguson BURN, to increase the CHAOs they feel will lead to their added control.

If is fair to say the Gov. Jay Nixon's political career is over - too bad it didn't happen prior to his full display of incompetence.

Jeff Dunetz said...

Happy Thanksgiving to all. God Bless America. And....thank you for the laughs!

Jeff Dunetz said...

A terrorist tactic never used in the US before but widely used by al Qaeda & the Taliban.... Shooting at 1st responders after starting a fire.... Who trained the looters to do that? US thugs usually strike & run.

Jeff Dunetz said...

Blame the race baiters like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, & Eric Holder. And, it doesn't help when the President secretly tells to stand fast. Now, it's legal for anyone in the US to protest PEACEFULLY. But, nobody is going to convince me that the majority of the looters weren't paid thugs shipped in by Holder, or Sharpton. And, I agree with rosemaienoa that his mother, step father, & father are to blame for raising a thug, & trying to pretend he was an earth angel.

Jeff Dunetz said...

Great spoof, Yid. Thanks. We will contribute to keep you writing. You are a great writer and very incisive.

Jeff Dunetz said...

Pretty good- if only to inspire some actual thought about the root causes and real villains.


Why the violence? Well, it feels good to smash something when you're all riled up, particularly if you've been told it's only retribution for someone else having more than you.


Our public education system, particularly in the inner cities, is highly destructive. Think about it- would you rather have a child taught that, while racism does exist, it cannot stop you from being successful if you try; or would you teach that child that there is no point in even trying because "the man" won't let you succeed. If the Klan ran the schools with the intent of ruining the lives of black Americans, I could not think of a more effective way of doing so.


It has been stated that the best correlation of poverty is not race, but waiting to get married before having children, and staying married. The government stepped in and created AFDC- which gave an actual incentive for black men to abandon their families. Not such a good idea if you are trying to promote the general welfare (in the original meaning of the term).


I will toss some blame in the direction of our "Dear Leader Obama". Where are the public announcements to young black girls not to get pregnant before marriage. A statement from him to the "community" would be powerfully helpful and do much to improve the plight of those for whom he purports to care about. The same goes for racial hucksters like Jackson, Sharpton, and Holder.


Their silence on something so important tells me much about their true intentions.

I have to go with the global warming excuse. The hot weather has been cooking their brains. Everyone knows that white reflects heat and black absorbs heat.
I'm still working on the reason why there weren't more folks out after it had snowed. Perhaps they realized that the burning of the buildings created more heat, contributing to even more global warming?
Note: I'm upset that the ice in my tumbler seems to be melting faster, watering down my drink. It was especially noticeable the first night of the riots when I was relaxing on my sofa watching FOX news out on the West Coast. I must admit the Orange glow from the fires made for a better TV viewing experience.
